Ellen DeGeneres Says She Hated Working on 'American Idol'
When asked if she really hated working on the show, the 57-year-old comedian replied saying, “Yes…that’s one of the worst decisions I’ve made.”
“As a fan of the shows, it doesn’t matter that I sing or I know anything about pitch or anything, I’m like everybody else at home. It’s American Idol,” Ellen added when asked why she did it in the first place. “So I thought I’m gonna represent those people at home that have opinions… but then I just thought, like Howard says, I can’t break this person’s heart. Let somebody else do that.”
